Blockchain was first coined as a term in 2008; however, more than 10 years later when people hear the word “Blockchain” they still respond with a variety of reactions. Some feel as though it’s a buzz word used by digital currency retail investors who act like the used car salesman of the tech industry, and others think of it as a future for the digital economy.
This fall, we took our Lady Problems Hackathon Series global, and we wanted to make sure we found partnerships with companies that truly aligned with our vision. We immediately turned to one of our favorite partners, HPE.
When we decided to launch our Lady Problems Global Hackathon Series, AngelHack wanted to ensure that we not only addressed the issues preventing female entrepreneurship, but also changed the negative narrative of what “Lady Problems” meant. When we met with Proctor & Gamble, we knew they would be the perfect fit to assist us in fulfilling those goals.
We all know that the gender gap in the technology field is vastly unequal. If you are someone who is interested in closing that gap and making a difference, then Women Who Code is your go-to girl. Why? Because Women Who Code is making massive global strides to bridge that gap every day.
We are beyond excited to be working with Lighthouse labs during our Lady Problems Global Series! Canada will always have a special place in AngelHack’s heart and these folk have graciously worked with us to bring you all a sick venue in Vancouver!
